    Head injury advice in Hyndburn

    Head injuries are common injuries in road traffic accidents, contact sports, and falls. The injuries can be minor or severe, and the treatment and recovery will vary greatly depending on severity. Some people who sustain a head injury will stabilise quickly, while others will actually get worse over time.

    Symptoms of head injury include:

    • leaking cerebrospinal fluid from the nose, mouth or ear
    • headache, nausea or dizziness
    • unconsciousness
    • seizures
    • memory loss
    • difficulty speaking or staying awake

    It’s obviously important that you are seen by a medical professional as soon as possible after a head injury, either by attending A&E or calling 999 emergency services. A doctor will examine you and check the severity of the injury, including any possible internal damage or secondary symptoms.

    Most patients leave hospital within 48 hours, although if the injury is severe enough, it may take longer. It’s also likely that you’ll be advised to take enough time to properly recover, especially within the first week, as symptoms can sometimes appear or reappear once you’ve left hospital.

    It’s important to take it easy and recover, which means no strenuous activity, including sports, manual work etc. This could mean taking time off work, which leads us to the possible financial costs of head injuries.

    The cost of head injuries

    Time off work can lead to a loss of earnings, if you’re on a reduced salary or statutory sick pay, for example. You may also incur other costs such as medical bills or fees for medication, travel expenses, or the costs of personal care or help around the home if your injury has been debilitating.

    Since these costs can add up and lead to financial difficulty, government legislation is in place to ensure that you are entitled to make a claim for compensation if the accident was someone else’s fault and took place within the last 3 years.
